Sound remix from BBC and Track 7 of
2003 album “The Poignant Reminder”
by David Graves
"Blue" recaptured clips from "Swing Time" (1936) dvd. Juxtaposing the re-contextualized video with a totally unrelated audio mix, a sense of separation and detachment unfolds.
"Blue" projection contrasts to the time and environment we live in today. The visual evokes in passerby a lost sense of time to many only exists in Hollywood films; once the sound is turned on, a different set of feelings would emerge from the a/v relationship pulling the forgotten past closer to the present.
